I know this issue has been up before but I have tried:
Various versions of DivX and XVid codecs: None of these files play.
Ace Mega Pack (200MB worth of codecs): None of these files play.
bsplayer - None of these files play.
Core Media Player - None of these files play.
FourCC Changer - FourCC Description Code and FourCC Used Codec fields show garbage characters on ALL files. (All parts downloaded files passed the BitTornado hash check btw.)
GSpot - Can’t detect any codec information in any of these files.
MPlayer (on Gentoo Linux with all codecs in the Portage tree) - Can’t playback any of these files.
TMPGEnc - suggests these aren’t even AVI files.
Any ideas to play the above mentioned file would be greatly appreciated.
It’s something fishy if your download is not compressed.Or is fake or somebody plays stupid jokes to load data as an avi.HD shows come like x vid file with mp3 sound.I had this ugly experience with fake Da Vinci movie and not only was fake had even a password on it.My advice try to download it again from a different site.
Sounds pretty certain that although it may have an .avi extension, it’s not.
This isn’t un-common. It’s the chance you take when you try to download illegal rips. Try another file or source.
Also, avi files have to be 100% complete for them to work properly, unlike mpg’s which will play when not complete. It’s to do with the indexing or something. Maybe the file you have downloaded isn’t complete.
i have this problem too. I have tried downloading the same file but different source 3 times and non of these 3 files can play. and i am sure they are different files as their size are different but just the same file ext.
I too am having the same problem. With many of the hdtv.xvid-lol files nothing works and I’ve downloaded every suggestion so far. I don’t have a problem with other downloads, and once in while xvid-lol works. The files show as a AVI, but nothing plays them and nothing recognizes it. I have GSOT, video inspector, Mpui player, VLC player, DVIX 5 player, but nothing.
I’d think many would be having this same problem? Its not the computer, i have 3 and its the same on all. help.. thanks
Dont install fuck!
In the end you’ll have enough codecs to induce a conflict then crash ur computer.
Dont just install codecs and hope for the best, use GSpot to ascertain which codecs u actually need.
